Height=38" (65 percentile)

Height-30" (55 percentile)
However, Casen's head proved to be very big this time. We have never had that issue with him before. That can be normal for some kids but since Casen never had a big head the doctor was "concerned". She said that when babies have a big head growth jump as big as his, it can be a "read flag" for something else. I asked what that was and she said that she just wanted to be sure so she ordered an ultrasound of his head. His soft spot is still opened so they can do an ultrasound versus having to do a CT scan if it was already closed! Very thankfully for that because then he would need to be sedated!
So next Wednesday we have to go to LB Memorial Miller's Children's Hospital (Jocelyn had 2 big tests there and they are amazing) to have the ultrasound of his head! I expect for them to say all is fine and I'm glad our pedi is on top of things and ruling things out.
Around Casen's same age I had something similar so I'm pretty sure it's the same thing. Obviously it was nothing with me so hopefully we will have the same findings with Casen!
Here is a good link on the easy procedure:
I can't wait to one day tell the story of how big his brain was that the doctors needed a picture! Such our smart boy!
So strange to have to go back to that hospital after we thought we were done with all of that. But at least we know Casen is very healthy and this should just be a routine test to rule anything abnormal out!
